OSI Food Solutions: The growth of a small meat shop to an iconic empire

OSI Food Solutions Group started as a small meat market but has become a business partner to many food-related organizations. Right from its humble beginnings at Illinois, the company has made significant strides which have created a fascinating history. Otto Kolschowsky founded it in 1909 two years after his arrival in the United States. Over the next decades, the company grew and adopted a name, Otto & Sons.

Otto & Sons would establish a strong reputation through partnerships with other unparalleled businesses. Its first partnership was with an entrepreneur in Illinois who had obtained the rights to establish a chain of burger restaurants. With the first franchise opening Des Plaines, Illinois in 1955, Otto & Sons became the primary supplier of ground beef patties.

OSI Food Solutions Group continued to evolve through its operations which quickly resulted in greater growth both in the country and the world. Some of the key partnerships that it has established include Alaska Milk Corporation and the General Million Corporation. It has also acquired joint ventures with processing plants, farms, and warehouses, thanks to its expansion in Europe, China, and the US.

The company has taken control of its capabilities and global escalation. The primary goal is to produce value-added food products. These must fit their customer’s preferences which include the satisfaction of a wide range of tastes. Interestingly, the company is in favor of the market because as its services and products expand, the market is also growing.

OSI Food Solutions Group has beaten all odds by becoming a global juggernaut. The unique solutions and the ability to master an approach of staying ahead of the current trends define the company’s efficiency. With the aggressive expansion, the company seeks to work with leading branded companies across the world.

OSI Food Solutions Group has its operations in more than 17 countries. It is ISO certified with a workforce of over 20,000 employees. Among its many other agendas is fostering environmental stewardship with greater sustainability of its development projects.
